Is this the greatest illusion seen on television?

Michigan State Spartans coach Mark Dantonio shocked fans earlier today when he appeared to vanish from the television screen live on air.

The freakish illusion happened as wide receiver Darrell Stewart Jr. passed in front the camera as Dantonio was on screen.
